You expect cheap gags from a Rob Schneider movie, and The Animal delivers in the best possible way. Schneider plays Marvin Mange, a schlub of a police file clerk who drives off a cliff and is horribly mangled--only to wake up not only whole, but feeling better than he ever has in his life. He suddenly develops strange powers that lead to him being praised as a super cop. Unfortunately, his powers are the result of a scientist's bizarre experiment--and before long, some side effects start to take over his life. It's hard to put a finger on Schneider's appeal, but he's got something. He can get away with tasteless jokes about bestiality and bodily functions because... well... he's sort of helplessly sympathetic, and somehow this actually makes him funny. --Bret Fetzer
This would be the rating of the teens in the house... Easy watching, funny and fun. Nothing to complain about... The classic SNL type stuff that got Rob Schneider started.Published on Jan. 14 2013 by Erika Novak
I saw "Animal 2", which I enjoyed, so I thought I'd give the prequel a look. It was an o.k. film, if you like stories about the generational gap between a father and his son. Read morePublished on April 8 2010 by Thomas Maye

I have enjoyed his other movie, the Deuce Bigalow, but this one, the Animal, was slightly dissapointing to me. Especially one thing, the car accident, was too unrealistic. Read morePublished on March 7 2003 by tomaso68
